As a professional adventure skier and filmmaker, Brody Leven travels the world to climb up and ski down some of the most challenging mountain peaks in the world. Through these adventures, Brody not only learns deeply about the physical and mental skills required to climb up and ski down these mountains, but also learns many important lessons that transcend his craft that he regularly applies in his personal and professional life. Brody is an activist for climate change and brings his message to countless people through the talks and presentations that he gives.
In this episode, Brody also shares a life-changing adventure that he completed in 2018 which he made into his documentary 'Lost'. I encourage you to check out the short documentary by clicking the link below.
